MS DevStudio - EM.DLL won't Load

Hi!
Just starting to learn the MS DevStudio environment and I'm having difficulties in loading the EM.DLL module (v5.00.7022). Basically I'm getting the following message whenever attempting to run the debugger or when first firing up the Development Studio (v '97 with C++ 5.0):
"EM.DLL  This required file cannot be loaded. Please re-install Microsoft Developer Studio."
So, I re-installed - twice. Still no change. Tried copying the DLL into several different bin directories. No change. Double checked the Registery and it pointed to where I expected: "C:\Program Files\DevStudio\SharedIDE\bin".
I haven't a clue what's going on. I was hoping that someone would point out the obvious to me since I'm being so obtuse.
Thanks! (I'm assuming its something real simple . . . is it?)

Check to see if you have a dll of your own named em.dll.

If you don't, the DevStudio's em.dll requires the following files:

  msvcrt.dll imagehlp.dll msdis100.dll msvcp50.dll
  (plus the regular windows system stuff like kernel32.dll)

make sure you have them.

Thanks! Turns out I was missing the imagehlp.dll file - its on my DevStudio CD - don't know why it didn't transfer to disk. Oh well, manual copy worked just fine.
